Cats on the Job  

Saturday, December 5 at 3pm
Author Afternoon with LISA ROGAK, author of Cats on the Job

True Tales of the Cuddliest Coworkers

Around the world, there are cats earning their keep. Some are mousers, like Princess, a black cat who works at Mill Ridge Farm’s stables. Some are circus performers, like Tuna and her furry friends in The Amazing Acro-Cats. And some are even politicians, like Mayor Stubbs, an orange tabby who holds office in Talkeetna, Alaska.

In Lisa Rogak’s Cats on the Job, we meet these and other whiskered workers who keep their human colleagues company from 9 to 5-with the occasional break for a nap or a belly rub-and make every day at the office better.

Lisa Rogak is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 40 books. Her works have been mentioned in The Wall Street Journal, Parade Magazine, USA Today, Family Circle, and hundreds of other publications, and she has appeared on Oprah. A few years back, the Vail Daily said she’s written “the most absurd selection of books known to man”.

Lisa grew up in Glen Rock, New Jersey, and spent most of the 1980s living in New York City. In 1988, she headed north and landed in New Hampshire and spent two decades there before hitting the road full-time. After spending time in Central America, Norway, Spain, Panama, Scotland, Eastern Europe, Mexico, and a variety of Caribbean islands, she headed back to New Hampshire to happily settle back down.

The Sugar Mountain Snow Ball   Saturday, December 19 at 2pm
Author Afternoon with ELIZABETH ATKINSON, author of The Sugar Mountain Snow Ball

The charming, funny story of Ruby LaRue, an eleven-year-old girl with an enthusiastic zest for life, and her shy, brilliant friend, Eleanor Bandaranaike.

Ruby and Eleanor live in the quaint town of Paris, New Hampshire, located at the base of Sugar Mountain, an exclusive ski resort in the White Mountains. Every winter, Paris comes alive with “Outers,” wealthy families from out of town who own ski condos and wear designer clothes, luxuries that Ruby and Eleanor (and most of the year-round residents of Paris) can’t afford.
One December day, Ruby and Eleanor stumble across Madame Magnifique, the “World’s Most Divine Psychic,” who urges them to unlock their deepest dreams. Ruby has always longed to mingle with the Outers and now, more than ever, she is determined to make that dream come true.

As a chain of events unfolds over the winter months, both girls find themselves on a journey of self-discovery that includes unlikely friendships, crushes, profits, secrets, and a surprise ending!
A relevant story in today’s world – exploring cross-cultural sensitivities and diversity within a classic New England microcosm – The Sugar Mountain Snow Ball questions the role of destiny and the ability we all have to achieve that which seems impossible.

Born in Rhode Island, followed by a few early years in North Carolina, Elizabeth grew up in a classic New England village —and spent blissful weeks each summer in North Lovell, Maine where her grandparents had a cottage and beach on Kezar Lake. She’s enormously proud of her two young adult children, Nathaniel & Madeleine and her husband, Erik (who runs his own cool company and the Hot Chocolate motorcycle gang.)
